I live out in the suburbs. I don't mind the drive because Nashville traffic isn't terrible, generally speaking. Paying for parking is a real bitch though. About $450/year. My rent is about what it costs to live near campus with a roommate, except I don't have a roommate and I have a nice-sized apartment in a safe area. If you're into the bar/social scene, I wouldn't recommend it because hardly any 1Ls live out here, making ride-sharing difficult, and you'd be left with taking cabs to and from downtown.
